8.79. gtk2

Updated gtk2, gdk-pixbuf2, librsvg2, and libwmf packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The gtk2 packages provide a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces, GIMP Toolkit (GTK+). GTK+ offers a complete set of widgets and is suitable for small projects as well as complete application suites.
In addition, this update fixes the following bugs:

Upgrade to an upstream version

The gdk-pixbuf2 packages provide an image loading library that can be extended by loadable modules for new image formats. It is used by toolkits such as GTK+ or clutter.
The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) library based on the libart library.
The libwmf packages provide a library for reading and converting Windows Metafile Format (WMF) vector graphics. The library is used by applications such as GIMP and ImageMagick.
The gtk2 packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.24.23, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1100886)
In addition, this update fixes the following bugs:

Bug Fixes

BZ#909454
The gtk_cups_connection_test_new() function used the default IPP port instead of the real one. Consequently, the GTK print dialog failed to get printer information from remote CUPS servers with a non-standard port number. With this update, the correct port number is used and GTK no longer fails.
BZ#1015044
The rsvg-convert utility of the librsvg2 library did not respect the width and height specified with the viewBox attribute in SVG files. As a consequence, avatar icons were smaller than they were supposed to be. With this update, the utility uses the correct width and height.
BZ#1104681, BZ#1104684
The gdk-pixbuf loaders were moved to a separate directory as part of the separation of the gdk-pixbuf2 library to its own package. This update moves the loaders present in the librsvg2 and libwmf libraries to the new directory.
BZ#1126916
The newly-added GtkComboBoxText widget could cause applications that used it to terminate unexpectedly due to the incorrect initialization of one of the widget's properties. With this update, the initialization has been fixed and the applications no longer crash in the described scenario.
BZ#1127719
Missing forward declarations for various functions caused the compiler to assume an implicit 32-bit integer return type. Consequently, the compiler terminated unexpectedly because the string pointer was truncated to 32-bits and then extended back to 64-bits. With this update, the "#include" lines for the appropriate headers have been added at the top of the affected source files. As a result, the compiler no longer crashes.
BZ#1128798
Previously, the GTK+ print dialog failed to print to a file in the default directory due to an incorrect path generation of the file. The generation of the path has been fixed, and GTK+ prints to a file as intended.
The gdk-pixbuf2 packages provide an image loading library that can be extended by loadable modules for new image formats. It is used by toolkits such as GTK+ or clutter.
The librsvg2 packages provide an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) library based on the libart library.
The libwmf packages provide a library for reading and converting Windows Metafile Format (WMF) vector graphics. The library is used by applications such as GIMP and ImageMagick.
The gtk2 packages have been upgraded to upstream version 2.24.23, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#1100886)
Users of gtk2, gdk-pixbuf2, librsvg2, and libwmf are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
